The road network in Jamaica consists of almost 21,000 kilometres of roads, of which over 15,000 kilometres is paved. The numbering scheme used covers freeways, primary (or A) roads, secondary (or B) roads, parochial roads and unclassified roads.


Starting in the late 1990s the Jamaican Government (in cooperation with private investors) embarked on the Highway 2000 project to create a system of freeways, the first such access-controlled roads of their kind on the island. The project seeks ultimately to link Kingston with Montego Bay and the north coast. It is being under taken as a series of phases:
  • Phase 1a was the 33 kilometre Kingston-Bushy Park highway (in actuality, Kingston-Sandy Bay) which was completed in 2003, and the upgrade of the Portmore Causeway, completed June 2006.
  • Phase 1b Sandy Bay-Williamsfield (for Mandeville).
  • Phase 2a Old Harbour-Ocho Rios.
  • Phase 2b Mandeville-Montego Bay.

On 2009-09-15 Jamaica's prime minister, Bruce Golding, announced to Parliament that Highway 2000 is to be renamed in honour of Usain Bolt.
